Despite the name: Eagles of Death Metal has nothing to do with death metal !
Eagles of Death Metal is a rock band created by Jesse “The Devil” Hughes and Josh “Baby Duck” Homme, who is also the leader of Queens of the Stone Age as well as the lead singer of Them Crooked Vultures. Those two are the permanent members but Homme never plays live concerts with them due to his other projects. Many known artists such as Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) or Jack Black have brought their support to their records and live shows.
The band shines by its simplicity, they just want to play good rock n’ roll and have fun. It’s so simple that, for example, most of the songs in the first album were recorded in just one take.
We loved them even more after learning that both are friends since childhood and that Jesse claims Josh saved his life by helping him to get out of his serious drug addiction.
But, just like EODM would, let’s keep this short and simple and let you enjoy their motherf*cking songs.
